Someone tell Stewart Lee that the girls at Rye College did nothing wrong.
So disappointed in Stewart Lee and his wife Bridget Christie. I thought they might be the ones to take a stand for reality and feminism but he's a gender sell out like the rest of them. It's so pathetic and cowardly.
Another grumpy lefty comedian here.
I'm planning to write a response to Stewart Lee's article, and to honour his integrity, I shall not read his article before writing my response.
Obviously these children don't know what they are talking about and don't know best. If these children wanted double mastectomies to affirm their gender would Stewart Lee then believe that they know what they are talking about and they know best? Schrodinger's Trans strikes again.
The comedian whose sell out has impacted me personally the most is Richard Herring. Long time fan and monthly paid subscriber, I tweeted my incredulity that he had promoted Jordan Gray on IWD when RH has been a brilliant supporter of women’s rights - immediate block. I don’t want to sound like the “JKR has ruined my childhood memories” but it has been a shock to me how someone previously aligned with rationality and the needs of women for DV services plus patron of Scope (disability) has pivoted to prioritising the ‘needs’ of men. 😢
Especially as he didn't touch this stuff with a bargepole, until his wife, who identifies as a comedian, based almost all of her sthick on it.
He used to be my favourite comedian. But when I saw him live recently he tried to mock Ricky Gervais and he just looked like a sad git jealous at someone who is far more witty and successful than he is.
Hi Stephen. A minor point of possible clarification: AFAIK this was not done in the lesson itself - I think the girls were kept back?
